best value pick up

THIS TRUCK IS A GREAT VALUE FOR A SMALL PICK UP - WHICH ARE HARDER & HARDER TO FIND. EVEN THOUGH A TACOMA MAYBE A BETTER TRUCK I DIDN'T FEEL IT WAS WORTH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN PRICE DIFFERENCE. PRICE WISE THIS TRUCK COMPARED EVENLY TO A SUZUKI EQUATOR BUT COMPARING COMFORT & PERFORMANCE IT IS TWICE THE TRUCK.

American Made with More American Parts

Chevrolet has the highest amount of American parts of any midsize pickup truck made in America today. This is the best value for any truck made in America. Toyota dealers make their trucks out to like the BMW of pickup trucks and thus keep the prices high., Toyotas have cheaper sheet metal & they have numerous problems that the dealers try to hide. The Chevrolet Colorado outshines the Toyota Tacoma in being a good honest pickup truck.

better than my S-10

Well made pick-up and a pleasure to drive. This is my second chevy Pick-up truck and I will buy another. I most enjoy the increased interior room

Nice value......good fit for everyday use.

Practical, for general hauling. Ride is nice, gas mileage could always be better..... but then it is a truck. I find the interior and exterior a bit dated and understand there will be changes for the 2013 model. All said, the truck is a good value and I like it.

Very satisfied

I was looking for a mid-size truck to replace my aging '97 Ranger and after considering the imports I settled on the Colorado (4 door model) - an overall better value for the money. I'm very satisfied with the comfort level, headroom, power and acceleration. The only thing it lacks is a jack for my ipod - pity they didn't bother to add that feature to the radio. Apart from that I have no complaints.

Best Compact Truck

I bought my 2012 Colorado Crew 1LT last sept and i have over 30,000 miles on it and i keep the oil changed at 10,000 with pennzoil platinum, so far i have put a K&N Air Filter and tonneau cover and other goods..I use my truck for work and haul car parts for an auto retailer and my truck gets regular service and so far has not been the repair shop except for the body shop when i was rearend by an UNINSURED motorist and on my route i an getting no less than 21 mpg and i do town and highway miles.. yes i would by 10 more just like it...and i have the 2900 I-4 cyl with the 18 wheel options

Best bang for the buck!

Have had pickups both from Nissan & Toyota in the past. Those trucks offered a good ride ride & a good price. Nissan dealers will try to nogiate with you. Toyota dealers play hard ball with pricing. Test drove both the Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma & I test drove several times the Chevrolet Colorado and bought it with no regrets. Did not feel overwhelmed by the simple layout of the Colorado compared to both the Nissan & the Toyota. The accelaration in the Colorado felt quicker than the Toyota Tacoma. The Nissan was quicker. I do not need to win the Dayota 500. My needs are met by the Colorado 3.7 LTR engine. The ride is firm & not harsh in the Colorado. The seats are comfortable with the lumbar support & the standard sound system in the crewcab more then meets my needs. Add the personal audio link & you can use your I-Pod. The folks at the Chevy dealer were great & did not try to close me on the spot as the Toyota folks did. I got a great price along with a great ride from the Chevy folks and do not have any regrets.

Good & Honest Pickup Truck

Bought a 2012 LT2 Crew Cab. It does not have factory extras that some of the other makers are forcing on their buyer.(eg: wheel locks, carpeted mats, door sills, etc) Had room to bargin for a price. This is a pickup truck the way it should be. If you want heated leather seats, navigation systems, etc, then maybe you should buy a car or a SUV.
